„Villa @ Goethe“ presents


Dir. Marc Brummund. Cinematography: Judith Kaufmann. Editor: Hans Funck. 
Germany, 2015, 104 min. German with english subtitles, digital.

Germany, May 1968: As the country is caught up in the midst a new era of freedom that includes the Rolling Stones, bell-bottoms, mini-skirts, the sexual revolution, and protests against the Vietnam War, rebellious 14-year-old Wolfgang is at odds with his parents. 
As a last resort, he is sent to Freistatt, a foster home for difficult children. There he is to be “educated” to become a decent boy.

Wolfgang puts up a determined resistance against the brutal working conditions and the perfidious education methods of the wardens; he doesn’t allow them to get him down. 
But for how long can he manage to resist the system of violence and oppression without brutalizing himself? 
Based on true accounts, Brummunds film is about a boy’s merciless to save his last bit of humanity and dignity in an oppressive system. 

Discussion with Director Marc Brummund, and reception following the screening.
